NATIVE Food revolution

We have a passion to educate and promote the growth of the Native Foods Industry. We do this by providing information, speaking at events and at schools and by consulting with people within the food and beverage industry.  

We have been working directly with some Indigenous communities to help them establish native food volume and establishing accounts in which they can grow into the future.

NATIF has been donating to Children's Ground for over 6 years, we have been planting trees with ReForest Now and donate to Wildlife Victoria. We not only dontate but give up many hours of our time and resources to help people navigate the Native Foods Industry. We collaborate with Universities for research and round up native foods for research.

We benefit share with Indigenous businesses/communities by giving back at the time of bulk purchase rather than making them wait until individual products are sold for those relevant products.

Natif ethics

natif ethics

NATIF values the importance of evidence based and traditional information about native foods, where they come from, how they are processed, the method and ethics of collection and rights of the Indigenous people who collect some of this food, including their IP.  

We have always paid a higher price for our native ingredients from all growers and harvesters, who are paid above award wages for their collections of native foods.

 By purchasing some of these foods, you're helping to keep up the supply and demand, which in turn provides opportunities for all Australians.

We collaborate with The Kindred Spirits Foundation who have set up the Traditional Homeland Enterprise for Indigenous communities and wild harvest projects and we work direct with Indigenous Communities to help grow their native food projects, which includes visiting them in person.

NATIF is a Social Enterprise.  Established in 2015, in Melbourne. Our Office Warehouse is in a co-share E-Commerce facility, with over 60 other businesses.

Our native fruits are freeze dried in a HACCP facility in Victoria, which supports local jobs in their community.  We also use local businesses in the running of our business.

Our packaging is in food grade recycable bags and biodegradable bags. Some of our products are packed in Bio-degradable cylinders with bio liners.

We encourage re-cycling and re-use of our bags.  We ship to you in bio-degradable bags using bio-tape and use reclaimed boxes and fill.

NATIF seeks to raise awareness and connection to our environment. 

There was once over 5,000 edible plants in Australia, which sustained one of the oldest civilisations on earth for over 65,000 years, the Indigenous Australians. Australian native plants and bush foods have adapted to this harsh ancient Australian environment and because of this, some of their fruits, herbs and spices contain more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals than other common nutritious foods, making them true superfoods.
